I used to read people blog posts with the same title and roll my eyes. The fact of the matter is I’m deathly scared of cutting coffee out of my life. I love it. But upon recommendation of a book I am reading, and trying to deal with some symptoms I am having, I am trying to wean myself to one cup of coffee a day.
It’s really no big deal…..I usually only drink 3-4 cups so cutting down to one should be a piece of cake right? Right?!?!?! Plus I really think I am more mentally addicted than physically. I just love the taste and the smell. So decaf would probably be good for me.
Today was day 1. Here’s what I noticed:
*Woke up at 5:30 am, did my workout. Everything normal because I don’t usually have my coffee until after breakfast.
*Ate breakfast with lemon water. Found myself unusually hungry.
*Had my one cup of coffee on the way to work.
*Got to work- sort of sluggish. Kids kept me on my toes.
*Planning period: VERY HARD to get work done. Found myself fiddling with my phone way too much.
*Lunch period: more hungry than usual.
*Afterschool: Exhaustion setting in.
Now it’s almost dinner time as I type this. I feel relatively normal, just a little more tired than usual. And hungry. I suspect this is because I usually use coffee to distract myself from eating.
I hope that I can stick with it. Try to ask me about it on my blog so I can be held accountable!!!
Have you ever tried to cut coffee out?
